Wellington, Florida - January 17, 2009 - It was a chilly but sunny day in South Florida, marking the end of week two for the Winter Equestrian Festival, held at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center. In the Grand Hunter Field the Amateur-Owner 18-35 Hunters competed for championship and reserve championship awards. In Ring 7, junior riders competed for tricolors in the Large Junior 16-17 Hunters, Large Junior Hunters 15 and Under, and Small Junior 16-17 Hunters divisions.

Katie Dinan and Allejandro garnered the championship award in the Large Junior Hunters 15 & Under division, despite having to stop and restart their second course after a bush fell in the middle of a jump. Mombo and Megan Davis followed with the reserve championship ribbon.

Dinan was very happy with Allejandro's performance over the last two days. "Yesterday he had a really nice first trip, and in the handy we made all the very inside turns and he held his pace really well. Today I had a good first trip, but during my second trip a bush flew down in the middle so I had to stop and re-do the line and finish the course," she explained. " He's a lot of fun to ride. He's pretty slow, but he'll perk up a little in the ring, you really have to keep his motor going. As long as you keep him forward and straight he jumps really well."

Allejandro is a very friendly horse, but sometimes he can nip. "We've been giving him a lot of treats recently, so he started biting a little. We were trying to make him really happy, and we were giving him treats for everything, so now he turns around and expects a treat every time you see him," Dinan laughed. Dinan plans to take next week off and is hoping for a good showing during WCHR week.

Today the Larger Junior 16-17 Hunters also competed in Ring 7, where the championship tricolor was awarded to Alise Oken and Take Away, while Rio Renoir and Jennifer Waxman earned the reserve championship honors.

Oken was thrilled with the excellent trips she produced with Take Away. "He was really good yesterday, he won both over fences," she smiled. "He had last week off, so he was rested for this week. The handy was a little tougher course, but he was good and it worked out."

This is Oken's last year as a junior so she wants to make the most of it. She is still deciding if she wants to ride at college, but she plans to compete with Take Away in the Amateur-Owner division, and also compete in the jumper divisions.

The final division of the day was the Small Junior 16 -17 Hunters, where Zazou Hoffman earned the championship prize aboard Undercover. Following with the reserve championship award was Game Plan, ridden by Jennifer Waxman.

The Winter Equestrian Festival Week 5 will begin on Wednesday, February 4, with championship and reserve championship prizes being awarded to the professional hunter divisions on Thursday.
